"I have a canon BJ330 that starts printing light and prints nothing. This
only happens approx once every 2 months. The unit has ink and it still thinks
it's printing but there is no ink on the paper. This has happened a couple
of times and so far I haven't figured out what it is that I do to 'correct'
I was thinking that there must be a way to clean the printhead that is not
in the service manual. Which I do not have, anyway."
On my DeskJet, I just blow gently into the vent hole on the ink cartridge.
I then wipe off blob of ink that forms on on the head and it works like a
charm - if you don't get ink all over everything. Perhaps, try the following
Remove the sponge from the purge cap carefully, try washing in water
carefully, and reinstall it:
- Remove the top cover to expose the printer power on the printer
when the printhead moves away from home position SHUT OFF the power
- You will see a rubber rectangle cap towards the bottom of it is the
sponge (called an 'Ink Absorber')
